Are you an immigrant? If you are not a U.S. citizen, some criminal convictions can result in your deportation or non-renewal of your visa. It is very important to get good legal advice before you plead guilty to any crime, including drugs, DWI, theft or domestic violence. Call now at 1-866-573-0441.

Fighting the Charges and Limiting the Impact

Many minor offenses, including certain drug crimes, may qualify for diversion or probation before judgment (PBJ), which can avoid jail and a conviction on your record if you stay clean. In other cases, such as a DUI, we have had success in challenging the evidence or questioning the reason for the traffic stop.

If dismissal is not possible, we will discuss with you the risks of going to trial vs. negotiating a plea to a lesser charge. Our criminal defense lawyers will personally handle your case (not a paralegal) and explore every option to protect your best interests.

Before you make any statements, call our Baltimore office at 1-866-573-0441 to discuss your case with an effective and caring attorney.
